To quote the Museum’s Second Grade Visitors “things change over time”. Our knowledge about this town where we live grows and grows. Information which was at one time only available in books, visitors to the Museum may now observe with their own eyes.
Esther Dunn begins her book “Webster Through the Years” by describing the sites where wandering tribes stopped along Irondequoit Bay during the Archaic Time Period. This summer we learned that four different groups of these Hunter/Gatherer groups visited Webster in the vicinity of Salt Road as well.
A collection of arrow heads and spear points from the Museum collected in the vicinity of Salt Road traveled to Buffalo. Points from four different hunter/gatherer groups were identified by experts at the Buffalo Museum of Science. Generous donors have added artifacts from early visitors to this area that we now call Webster. Stop by for a visit.
